5.0 out of 5 stars Prepositions Clarified 31 Jan 2006
By Steinbecks Shadow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So why exactly do we say "in" the car but "on" the plane? For the ESL learner, as well as the curious and uncertain native English speaker, this books simplifies a great deal of that part of speech which trips many of us up. If you "HAVE TO KNOW" the rules as to why something is used a certain way, this book does that too. If all you want to know is which preposition is correct without the history of the English language tagging along, this book scores here also. It offers sixty some-odd prepositions, arranged alphabetically, with simplified models and words grouped together that suit that preposition. The book can easily be incorporated directly into a lesson plan or modeled for students self directed use. Moderately priced, I opted for a class set just to have on hand when we start fine tuning our paragraph work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must for all English teachers 12 Aug 2008
By Kathryn Esplin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very helpful for all those who teach English - those who teach native speakers as well as those who teach ESL.

As well, this book is also a must for anyone who is still confused by our massive use of non-standard uses of prepositions, such as "about the house", "I will go see her about that."

As a teacher of English to non-native speakers, my students were always telling me that they found prepositions confusing - when to use "to,at,on."

This book clears up all this and more.

A must.

It does what the title says. It describes the ins and outs of prepositions. For me speaking two languages and Spanish as my first language, this book has helped a lot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Prepositions fully explained but.... 22 Mar 2007
By S. Cesare - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Prepositions are a boring topic.

The idea is to look at them in a systematic way.

Flat treatment of preposition meaning and usage (certain meaning are really rare).

Excellent the idea to indicate typical noun and verbs used with specific preposition patterns; but the verbs indicated are really a minimum list.

Missing a well chosen set of examples for every pattern (just a sentence for every pattern)

Excellent review of idiomatic expressions using the indicated prepositions

Ridicolous phrasal verb list.
